Abstract: Let $ \varrho :G\hookrightarrow GL(n, \mathbb{F})$ be a faithful representation of a finite group $ G$ over the field $ \mathbb{F}$ and let $ V \cong \mathbb{F}^n$ be an $ \mathbb{F}(G)$-module. It has been shown by L. Smith that if $ n=3$ and the order of $ G$ is divisible by the positive characteristic $ p$ of $ \mathbb{F}$, then $ \mathbb{F} [V]^G$ is Cohen-Macaulay. Under the condition $ n=3$ we prove the following conjecture through this remarkable result: If $ \mathbb{F} [V]_G$ is a Poincaré duality algebra, then $ \mathbb{F} [V]_{\operatorname{Syl}_{p}(G)}$ is a complete intersection, where $ \operatorname{Syl}_{p}(G)$ is a Sylow $ p$-subgroup of $ G$.
